- Close to Andalucian mountains, nature and 17km of coast
- Within easy reach of the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Nature Park
- Free wifi, playground and bar with a large terrace
Base yourself here with some haste if you like Spanish holidays with a difference, closeness to coast, nearness to nature parks and mountains to trek any day you pick.
This site is in a rather spesh setting to scrutinise a lot of what's on offer in arid Almeria, the most easterly region of Andalucia. The Cabo de Gata-Nijar Nature Park is within easy reach, Andalucia's biggest coastal protected area and with a full-on desert climate (yes, there be palms), as are the glittery white beaches of Mojácar – all 17km of them – and the mountain range of the Sierra Cabrera.
At base, Camping Sopalmo has pitches surrounded by carob trees, palms and shrubby gypsophilas, alongside showers and loos, free wifi, a playground, a washing-up area and a laundry room.
There's also a bar with a large terrace, and if you're here in December (again, this is a mild clime), you can put on your paper hat to have Christmas dins with the Camping Sopalmo team.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Coast, nature park or mountains first? But wait, lots of trad Spanish villages are in the area around Camping Sopalmo too, so have a peaceful and sunny wander through Níjar, Sorbas, Garrucha, Carboneras and Mojácar, all within a short drive.
And leave a couple of days at least for Mojácar, as this is where (more) white beaches be. The beach resort of Mojácar Playa covers about 17km of sands and we'd suggest finding a spot and basking there for the first day. Then spend another wandering along the water and then another in Mojácar town, which has seen humans tread its terrain for over 2000 years.
Mojácar Playa is at the foothills of the Sierra Cabrera mountain range: hire a car to drive through its roads, particularly the mountain road toward Cabrera via the El Dondo and La Adelfa (there are parts where you mightn't want to look down). By foot or wheel, hikes and mountain bike rides are well-travelled paths around here too.
At the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Nature Park, a popular place with natives and non-natives, you could hike around the Sierra del Cabo de Gata mountains or go scuba diving among the marine life of its tiny offshore islands. Bird watching, photography, geology trips and boat trips are all also easily available.
